The Tuning House, 2019
The Tuning House is a voice-activated light and sound installation where you use your voice to choose a color and sound palette. The frequency of the participant’s voice is translated into a synthesized pitch and color, creating a personalized expression of chromo-synesthesia.
As the participant hums, tone and sings, they find that the colors and sounds in the installation follow the sound of their voice. Isolating color and sound pairings in this way highlights a simplified and subjective relationship between frequencies which are present all around us.

Algorithmic Flower, 2018
Algorithmic Flower is an algorithmically controlled video sculpture. The sound is randomly generated and determines the colors of the “petals” and randomly flips through a Google image search for “wildflower” in its center. The interaction is a playful simulation and commentary on logic in nature.
Further documentation/images of Algorithmic Flower can be found here.
The Synchronizer, 2018
“The Synchronizer” is a playable video and sound palette. The viewer is asked to play a musical keyboard very slowly, with each note then triggering a synchronized series of notes and color/image pairing. The interaction encourages the participant to slow down in this active meditation.

Rubik's Color Wheel, 2018
“Rubik’s Color Wheel” is a playable color wheel (or grid.) The viewer plays a musical keyboard with each note they strike triggering an associated pitch and color on the grid. The interaction is meant to give the sensation of turning sounds into colors before your eyes in real-time.
